Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, SISTER OUTSIDER celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published. These landmark writings are, in Lorde's own words, a call to “never close our eyes to the terror, to the chaos which is Black which is creative which is female which is dark which is rejected which is messy which is. . . .” Reviews"'s been almost a quarter of a century since Audre Lorde's essays and speeches in Sister Outsider made an indelible mark on 20th-century literature. But the words of the black lesbian feminist poet seem as lyrical and unforgettable, and, sadly, as relevant today as when she first tackled everything from racism and homophobia to ageism and class dichotomies. A must-have book that every lesbian should read."—Curve Editor's Pick “Lorde was a brilliant feminist poet and intellectual whose theories on the power of embracing our internal contradictions as well as the differences between people and groups is the way to powerful coalition building and social progress.” —New York Post, Sunday “Poet and librarian Lorde collected 15 of her finest essays and speeches in this 1984 volume. With her poet's command of language, she addresses sexism, racism, black women, black lesbians, eroticism, and more. Still powerful.”—Library Journal, Starred Review“Audre Lorde is a passionate sage. I say ‘is' and not ‘was' because her keen insights continue to provoke and sustain us and give us courage. The reissue of this book is a gift to longtime admirers and to new readers who have yet to discover the power and grace and splendid audacity of Audre Lorde.”—Valerie Miner, author of After Eden and professor of feminist studies at Stanford University“[Lorde's] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware.”—New York Times From the Trade Paperback edition.

It is also the first to identify one of her original contributions to narrative art - a technique of "superimposition" or "double exposure" through which her books have explored topics now at the heart of feminist debate.

This landmark anthology features the work of acclaimed twentieth-century poets Gwendolyn Brooks, Etheridge Knight, Audre Lorde, Haki Madhubuti, Dudley Randall, and Sonia Sanchez. Introducing each author’s collection of poems are essays that present the political, cultural, and aesthetic contexts of each poet’s contributions to the Black Arts and Black consciousness movements. In her introduction to A Different Image, Dr. Gloria House, poet and scholar, writes that although Brooks, Knight, Lorde, Madhubuti, Randall, and Sanchez came to prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s, ". . . the issues that preoccupied them are still pertinent to our communities today, and their writings continue to enjoy worldwide demand. They articulated the deepest longings of their people—to express their African identity, and to assume their place in history. Moreover, they demonstrated a quality of craftsmanship that would set new literary standards. While improvising on traditional literary forms, they also initiated unique uses of English to render it truer to African American speech patterns and rhythms, an intimation of the affirmation that Black English would garner years later." A Different Image casts a new light on this exceedingly valuable literary tradition, and articulates the connections between the poetry of the Black consciousness era and today’s flourishing performance poetry movement. It will acquaint contemporary poets and students with the literary gold mine of their Broadside predecessors. A CD featuring selected readings from each poet's work accompanies the text.
